Research project: Accelerating progress on tobacco taxes in low-and middle income countries
The aim of this study is to analyze the effects of tobacco taxation and provide research-based evidence for more effective tobacco taxation policies
In this report, we describe and analytically ‘consolidate’ the tobacco environment in BiH, covering the most important areas related to tobacco demand and supply, followed by the tobacco use and its health and economic consequences
The report provides a brief discussion on tobacco control policies in BiH followed by a more detailed discussion of tobacco taxes, prices and smoker culture and behavior.
Based on data on changes in excise taxes, consumption of tobacco products, and the micro-data from the Household Consumption Survey, the UNIBL study confirms that a significant increase in excise taxes can provide additional benefits for society, through a decrease in consumption of tobacco products and faster increases in state excise tax revenues.
